This is what happened:
[raub at yakko ~]$ telnet mail.thespider.com 143
Connected to mail.thespider.com (192.168.1.12).
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK dovecot ready.
1 login boris at mail.thespider.com creepycrawly
1 NO Authentication failed.
1 login boris at thespider.com creepycrawly
1 OK Logged in.
* BYE Logging out
1 OK Logout completed.
Connection closed by foreign host.
[raub at yakko ~]$
I wonder if it has to do with the fact the virtual mailbox domain I
created in postfix is defined as thespider.com while the machine
running postfix/dovecot is mail.thespider.com.
